Suertes del Marques El Esquilon 2016
This is a very exciting wine from Tenerife. It is made from the local grape, Listan Negro from a hundred year old vineyard from which the wine takes its name. It is aged in 500 litre oak casks for 11 months. Obviously, being from Tenerife the soil is very volcanic and minerally, and yiu can taste it in the wine! Very Characterful.

a warm year, but the wines are fresh because they were picked early. This is pure Listan Negro. This has to be one of the best value wines from the winery." 94 points
